RSS

Notes on the RSS Protocol, a way of following blogs and articles in a decentralized fashion.

[Kill the Newsletter!] converts arbitrary email newsletters to RSS feeds. Likewise [rss-bridge: The RSS feed for websites missing it] attempts to graft RSS capabilities onto websites that don't support it any longer. Likewise, [GitHub - bcongdon/rssfilter: 🔍 Web service for filtering RSS articles] looks potentially useful for RSS.

[Tiny Tiny RSS] is a self-hosted RSS server that supports clients locally on a computer. I used this for awhile so that I could browse RSS on mobile and on desktop while using the same backend; as fun as it is to use newsboat and the web app, it's just not that fun to browse RSS feeds anymore - twitter is far more addictive, for better or for worse. [FreshRSS, a free, self-hostable feeds aggregator] also looks like a reasonable choice.

[Welcome to twtxt! — twtxt 1.2.3 documentation] is a microblogging service that borrows ideas from RSS, Twitter, Mastodon and other decentralized social media - it's absolutely worth looking into, though without network effects it's unclear whether it's ever worth using.
